Table Top Mini Picker
The mini picker is a fully adjustable, smaller, lighter yet efficient version of our full sized studio picker. The mini picker measures out at 22" long, 8.5" wide, and 9" high. Just like the studio picker, it is completely adjustable to account for your varied picking needs. It has roughly half the number of total points of its big brother, totaling out at 224 points (versus 424 points on the studio picker) that are spaced just as densely as on the studio picker. At about one third the weight of the studio picker, this mini picker is excellent for anyone who wants more portable, easy to move tools that don't require as much storage or use space.
No assembly is required when you receive your mini picker in the mail!
This machine passes the wool from the front to the rear, where it can drop into a container. The picker will tease, separate the ends of the locks, as well as blend wool prior to carding. This will greatly improve the ease of carding, whether by hand or by drum carder. It is also possible to spin the fibers directly from the picked condition to create an interesting and irregular texture, also dyed fibers blended together through the picker can be spun into interesting variegated yarn. We do not recommend using it to pick wool in the grease, as the seeds and vegetation will fall out more easily from washed wool. While some debris may fall out during picking, grass and burrs will not. The picker's purpose is to open the wool to prepare it for carding, or for spinning direct from the picked condition.
The Bench Wool Picker has 224 angled stainless steel points that DO NOT RUST, and are great for most wools and fine fibers.
The Wool Picker is made from sanded North American red oak and red oak veneers and is ready for whatever finish you wish to apply, if any.
Please treat this picker with GREAT RESPECT and take the appropriate care when using it. Never use this picker when children are in the immediate area. Use the same care you would use with any dangerous cutting device. PLEASE DON’T PURCHASE OUR PICKER UNLESS YOU ARE A RESPONSIBLE INDIVIDUAL WHO WILL ENSURE ITS SAFE USE AND LOCKED STORAGE.
We accept no responsibility for any damage or injury attributed to the wool picker. In addition, for your safety, we recommend wearing leather gloves.
